Trivia Question 2/7/13 – Monopoly

Uncle PennybagsToday we say happy birthday to Rich Uncle Pennybags, Jake the Jailbird, and Officer Edgar Mallory.  Where can you find all these people? On February 7, 1935 the board game Monopoly was published by Parker Brothers.


How much money is supplied to use in a modern standard Monopoly set?




Older versions of Monopoly provided $15,140 in multicolored bills.  Since 2008, standard editions of Monopoly provide the players with 30 bills of each denomination. So there are 30 $500, $100, $50, $20, $10, $5 and $1 bills.  That adds up to a total of $20,580.


Tonight we had a total of 33 people check in to the Net.  Nobody had the correct answer tonight but, since we use “Price is Right” rules, 5 people came closest without going over, with a guess of $20,000.  Congratulations to:

  • N1CGM – Kurt
  • KD6JEV – John
  • KI6NN – John
  • W6NVY – Gary
  • W6REH – Roy

Thanks as always to everyone who checked in a supported us tonight.
